Edson Barboza will square off against Evan Dunham tomorrow night in the co-main event at UFC Fight Night 45. Today Barboza spoke with MMAFighting.com to issue a challenge to Evan Dunham.

“Dunham is a warrior. He always walks forward even if he’s getting beat up,’ Barboza told MMAFighting.com. “He’s a true warrior, always has great fights, and that’s why I’m excited for this bout. I know it’s going to be a war. Let’s brawl in there.

“He stands and fights with anyone, but it’s a MMA fight. If I hit him, I know he will go for a takedown, but I’m ready for this type of fight as well.””I’m getting more comfortable on the ground every day, and that helps my striking game,” he said.

“My coaches and training partners know me. I have yet to show everything I can inside the Octagon. You haven’t seen the best Edson Barboza yet. I will unleash my striking better in this fight because I’m more comfortable with the wrestling and jiu-jitsu.”
